Performers in costumes dating from the Qing Dynasty (1644-1912) rehearse an ancient heaven worshiping ceremony yesterday at the Temple of Heaven in Beijing. The ceremony will be held daily during the first five days of the lunar New Year which begins on Sunday. The temple, which was constructed from 1406 to 1420, was visited by emperors in the Ming and Qing dynasties for annual imperial ceremonies offering prayers for a good harvest.
